Delaware Joint & Ligament Injury Lawyer
Connective Tissue Injury Attorney in WIlmington Delaware
Injuries involving the moving parts of the ankles, knees, elbows, shoulders are known as joint injuries. A joint is defined as the point of connection between two bones or elements of a skeleton, that allows for motion. These types of injuries can often times have long lasting, permanent damage and debilitating effects on the injured person. Injuries to joints may become worse over time if untreated, or treated incorrectly. Possible complications of untreated joint injuries include: arthritis, possible deformity & 'trick joints'. Often times these injuries are the result of someone else's negligence such as being injured in a car accident, pedestrian accident, workplace accident or slip & fall. If you have sustained a joint injury, please call The Freibott Law Firm to discuss what type and amount of compensation to which you are entitled.
Ligament & Connective Tissue Injuries
In addition to joint injuries, ligaments, tendons and other types of connective tissue are often damaged as a result of a joint injury. Ligaments are sheets or bands of fibrous tissue that connect bones or cartilage to a joint or supporting organ. Ligaments can also be damaged or torn without joint damage or injury. A torn ligament can produce bruising, discoloration, contusions & a painful joint with a noted loss of strength and a diminished ability to bear a person's weight. Connective tissue injuries are often times secondary to a joint injury. Tears to ligaments, tendons and cartilage are common connective tissue injuries seen in accident cases. Injuries to connective tissue, ligaments, as well as joints, can ultimately result in large medical bills, lost wages, physical, emotional and psychological trauma. If you have been in an accident, call The Freibott Law Firm at 302 633 9000 for a free consultation.
